Call Before You Dig, It's The Law!

Indiana 811 Logo. Know what's below. Call 811 before you dig.

Electric power lines are often buried underground. Please call Indiana Underground Plant Protection Service (IUPPSat (800)382-5544 or 811 at least two working days before the start of the actual excavation. It is the member's responsibility to notify IUPPS of any digging, whether it is a major excavation project or a simple project such as installing a fence or mailbox. If IUPPS is not notified and damage is done to the underground lines, it will be the member's responsibility to pay for the cost of the repairs. A simple call to IUPPS could save you costly damages and possibly even your life. For more information visit the IUPPS website.
